The Distillery History

The luck of the Irish has nothing to do with how good Great Wagon Road’s spirits are. That’s all skill, recipes, and adhering to the proven methods established by distillers that came long before. 

Our passion for distilling hails from a long history of whiskey makers who paid the price for us to get to do it freely.

 

THE DISTILLERY

Our main copper still was hand made in Germany utilizing age-old coppersmith techniques in harmony with modern touch screen control systems providing the best of what the old and new world has to offer. We age our spirits in new American white oak barrels, and we don’t touch them until they’re at the peak of their flavor. The result is a smooth well rounded Whiskey with a beautiful color. Peach and Cherry to the nose, rich and smooth with sweet vanilla on the pallet, then lingers with just a touch of spicy heat you’d expect from a fine award  winning Whiskey.

THE WATER

Always the purest and as a labor of love, Ollie insists on using water sourced from exceptionally pure artisanal spring water straight off the Blue Ridge Mountains from Yancey Co. North Carolina.

 

Ollie is known to go up as much as twice a month to retrieve the water from the spring catchment system on his mountain property.
